House Oversight Committee - Lights Out II: Another Look at EPA's Utility MACT Rule - The Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) rule proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is projected to cost utilities and power generators 0.9 billion in compliance costs every year. In EPA's rush to enact these rules, the agency cut corners by ignoring a comprehensive cost analysis, hurried through the rulemaking process, and acted under a false sense of urgency driven by EPA allies using a sue-and-settle approach. Today's hearing will give the Oversight Committee and the public a forum to assess EPA's rulemaking process, hold the agency accountable for its decisions, and understand what action is needed in the future to ensure that the regulatory process works with--not against--job creators and consumers.
